of state. we will more on that with bob beckel coming up. the more secular progressives understand now is their time in history. the agenda is clear. above all the secular forces want to change the economy. they want the government to run it and provide graddle to grave entitlements for those americans who cannot or will not provide for themselves. the left also wants to control profits in the private sector taking as much money as possible away from the achievers and the corporations. again, with the intent to redistrict the cash. so that's agenda number one. number two, is to obliterate some american traditions. gay marriage, not about matrimony anymore. it's about civil rights. and if you oppose gay marriage you are a hater, a rights denier. legalized narcotics, the left sees drug users as victims and believes no one has a right to stand between an american and intoxication much. on that note the "new york times" ran a front page article yesterday lamenting tough mandatory prison sentences for drug dealers. the left believes they are not violent offenders. so if you are selling meth
his - kill his girlfriend and himself. bob kostas tries to use that. >>> and how to make love last. the answer under your nose. "fox and friends" starts right now. >> gretchen: good morning, everyone. oh, the fiscal cliff. i was wondering what makes love last and under your nose it must be a scent. >> or maybe it is a moustachah. what was it a tree falling again. >> brian: you want to hear it again. >> steve: yeah. >> gretchen: it sounds like a horror movie like something up in the attic. >> steve: it is breaking. cliffhanger. i don't know. if the economy falls in the forest and no one is here to hear it is there a sound. yesterday the republicans blame the democrats and the democrats blame the republicans. john had a exclusive with chris wallace. >> brian: chris wallace sat down with jone boehner. >> steve: here is mr. boehner describing the impression at the moment of what tim geithner was trying to sell him. >> i was ghasted and i looked at him and said you can't be serious. i never seen like it we have 7 weeks before election day andepped of the year. three of those weeks are w
and a hat for 38 bucks. >> add a cup of coffee and a hot dog. >> while we use the word trousers, bob pisani is here watching what's good morning, bob. >> happy monday, everybody. did you notice the market. nice rally here. again, the market is demonstrated that it believes a deal on the fiscal cliff is coming. i know. i didn't hear it over the weekend. headline risk was all anybody wanted to talk about on friday. if anybody says that a deal is not happening or it's going nowhere, we could wake up down 15 points on the s&p on monday. guess what? boehner said the deal is going nowhere. now, when i call the bulls on this, they say, bob, they didn't say a deal was off. they just said so far the negotiations are going nowhere. the market still believes that a deal is coming and it's going to be a substantive deal. instead and by the way, geithner insisted on tax rates issues. looks like there may be something happening eventually. we didn't fall apart on the whole thing. even futures weren't down overnight. instead we rally on a little bit overnight on the greek deal and for those that don't kno
, bob doll will be giving us his lineup for stocks. that's coming up at 7:00 a.m. eastern time. at 8:00 eastern, a cnbc exclusive. david tepper, one of the world's top performing hedge fund managers will join us to give us some of his wisdom in a kaerc t can't-miss interview. a lot to talk about with him. in the meantime, why don't we get to some of today's top stories. we could see some movement in the fiscal cliff negotiations. house speaker boehner offering to raise the top tax rates on those making over $1 million a year as well as other measures amounting to $1 trillion in new revenue. that's in exchange for an equal amount in spending cuts. the white house has not yet accepted the proposal. >>> also, apple says it has sold more than 2 million in iphone 5s in china just over the last three days. that's the best ever debut for the iphone line in china. apple is china's second biggest market, although it did lose a lot of market share while they were waiting for that i5 to come out. and citi research has downgraded apple from a hold to a buy. you can see there just below $500. >>
telling us that this is not a balanced plan. they don't like it yet. and then earlier today, senator bob corker was on cnbc kind of pooh-poohing the whole thing. take a listen. >> we're not close to a deal. and i've been trying for three weeks, i've been standing on my head doing cartwheels to try to pivot toward entitlement reform. this is not a deal here. >> so carl, what's going on right now on capitol hill is that speaker boehner is meeting with his republican conference colleagues behind closed doors. we expect that at the top of the next hour, he's going to come out and talk before cameras. we'll get some reaction from his colleagues as well, what they think of this proposal and where they think this negotiation needs to go. but clearly, negotiations are ongoing, and the president and the speaker are coming closer together, whether or not that makes everybody happy or enough people happy to get a deal still remains to be seen, carl. >> eamon, this is a tough one to read. had the biggest movement been in that -- in the line in the sand with regards to how much people need to make to

, bob, it's a fantasy. all of this goldilocks stuff is a fantasy. you cannot get strong growth with rising taxes and lower spending. that's not going to happen. you cannot have unlimited stimulus that is not going to cause inflation. that's just a fantasy. so there's a real fight going on. none the less, have you noticed, gold being sold, buying the euro, it seems a weird trade going on here affecting the markets. this was going on yesterday as well. this may have to do with the yen. the yen is hitting new lows against the dollar. it's hitting new lows against the euro. have you seen what's going on with the japanese elections? the new prime minister told the bank of japan we want more stimulus. guess who's meeting thursday? the bank of japan. japan's exports fall for the sixth straight month. you are going to see the bank of japan on thursday announce new stimulus measures. you're going to see efforts to weaken the yen. it's going to get even weaker. that is the old yen carry trade. that may be where some of this money is coming from to do the odd little trades that seem to be

of jpmorgan and our own bob pisani. gentlemen, thanks for joining us. rich, what do you think about fundamentals going into 2013, corporate sector, economics? >> i'm actually quite bullish about 2013. i think we're going to start getting, as the year goes on, easier comparisons for corporate profits. the corporate sector as we know is loaded for cash. i think when we get beyond this uncertainty and corporations have more certainty, i think we're going to see an m & a wave because they have underinvestmented for the future by hoarding all the cash so i think they will have to buy growth so i think 2013 could be a very good career. >> what do you think, joe? >> i agree. everything we've been dealing with the past year has been the uncertainty. is it europe, the election? is it the fiscal cliff, but as you go through those one by one, the election is now behind us. i do believe we'll have a resolution on the fiscal cliff and if you look at europe, the ecb put a gigantic band-aid on this so next year will be a big year. >> did you see the s&p upgraded greece today by six notches? i had
on the wealthy, the top 2%. listen now this is your colleague, senator bob corker of tennessee. you'll hear him use the word folks, we believe he's talking about his fellow republicans, such as yourself. take a listen. >> if there is a growing group of folks looking at this and realizing we don't have a lot of cards as it relates to the tax issue before year end, a lot of people are putting forth a theory and i actually think it has merit where you go and give the president the 2% increase that he's talking about, the rate increase on the top 2%, and all of a sudden the shift goes back to entitlement. >> senator snowe, i've read that you've expressed similar sentiments. do you sense more republicans moving in that direction? >> well, at least from the standpoint that, you know, it is possible that what could happen is that we pass the tax cuts for the middle class, that's what, you know, i've been -- get that off the table. we all agree on that. it is not an issue in disagreement. then you can focus on the top 2% of the american people who pay the top tax rates and, of course, entitlement spend
boehner doesn't seem to have the power and grover does. >> the point, again, bob corker's pledge is not to me, it is to the voters of tennessee, that's the argument he's made again and again. if he wants to have a different conversation with the voters, that's his choice. >> why is corker the coolest man on earth? who does he play golf with? peyton manning. >> really? >> he's giving me all the big -- the minimum tax. i said, what are you up to this weekend? he said, i played golf with peyton manning. i said, are you kidding me? that seems to be more important to you than the fiscal cliff. >> 11-3? >> they still need home field advantage. >> they're competing for a first round play-off. what peyton has done is just amazing. steve liesman's exclusive with lacquer. one more look at futures this morning. we'll cover what 10% on squawk earlier today. and a lot more when "squawk on the street" comes right back.

interesting conversations over the weekend was bob corker saying, let's just go ahead, concede to the tax argument, which would flip the entire spotlight onto entitlements, which is what republicans have been trying to get the discussion to be about over the last couple of weeks. >> when you hear about entitlements, why aren't they talking directly, you know, medicare part b koshcosts x, or medicare a, should cost this. the last thing a republican wants to do is say, look, i'm cutting back medicare. so, i mean, if you switch it to entitlements, suddenly everyone has to say, social security goes from 66 to 68. is that what we do? do we means test medicare? it is so much easier for grover who will be on cnbc, forget the fiscal cliff, i will come after you with both barrels. if you vote tax increase. what's more -- do they want to rise above a tax increase? no. do they want to rise above fiscal cliff? no. what they want it do is not rise above the radar screen of raising taxes. and grover is more powerful than a recession. i asked him point-blank on "meet the press," college chum, look, it d

"squawk on the street" we have a lot to come, as well. the two senators we're talking with next, two members of the gang of eight now. we'll talk to them. guys we'll send it back to you right now. >> great. thanks, guys. appreciate that. we are now, though, going to flip it over to phil lebeau who is in new york and he's got breaking news. >> as expected we knew that delta was in negotiations to buy 49% stake in virgin atlantic. the deal has been completed. the price is $360 million for that delta will increase its access to heathrow. that's really the key here. 31 daily nonstop flights. that's all part of what goes between the uk and north america for virgin atlantic. the brand remains, guys. make that clear here. the virgin atlantic brand does not go away. what changes is that delta has a 49% stake in the company. there's going to be a press conference later this morning here in new york. we're going to be talking w
to explain about that. plus, we have bob from jones day who specializes in wall street deal making. jeff, it is ammo on wall street to do things behind closed doors. you don't want word to get out on the negotiations. it gets too messy. >> right. i wouldn't advocate for a lot of people to do what wall street does. one thing you can say is they've helped facilitate thousands of mna deals this year. they've figured something out with these transactions. the deals that are most successful have the better chance of success are the ones that you negotiate behind closed doors, not the ones that turn into hostile battles and spill out into public, which is what we're seeing noup. >> i understand that, but at the same time, what wh are we going to have a deal already? people are so frustrated by this. we've had 13 months to think about. now we're down to 26 days. bob, can you really make a deal on the fiscal cliff when the negotiation is out in public? do you think we'll get a deal done? that's what everybody wants to know. >> if everybody thinks we ought to get to a deal, we'll get to a deal. t
the affair happened. he has hired the super lawyer, bob barnett of williamton comely here in washington, known cleavely for negotiating multi million dollar book deals. i spoke with bob barnett yesterday. he told me that general petraeus has no plans to write a book at this time. that suggests petraeus considers that he still has some legal difficulty ahead of him for which he might need top dollar legal counsel. >> bill: what kind of legal difficulties could he have? it was a personal situation. he paid a price certainly in the public forum, but what is legally about it? >> i don't want to get ahead of the story, but suffice to say the f.b.i. investigation into this matter is not fully closed and there is the matter of -- that they're investigating of whether or not paula broadwell had classified information on her computer and access to it that she should not have. >> bill: okay. petraeus could be in trouble. where is miss broadwell? what is she doing? >> less is known about her activities. we did see her visit washington, d.c. after word of the affair broke. she was photographed with
with our own bob pisani. >> you're looking to the market right now based on the next 12 months. at about $109. we should be trading at around 1740. if we were at the median p.e. of 16 -- >> 1740 on the s&p? >> 1740 would be a 16-forward multiple which is the median since as far back as capital iq has had forward estimatinged earnings. >> right now you're on 1426 on the standard & poor's. let me get your take on this. i recognize there are a lot of ways to look at things. but there's also a technical way to look at something. and that is if a stock is undervalued, maybe it's cheap for a reason. and maybe it will get cheaper. so why do you think that we're supposed to go back to the way history has shown us, when in fact sometimes the stock is cheap for a reason and only gets worse. >> that's what's causing a lot of investors to sit on their hands saying i'm not buying into is the. our forecast is for a 10% advance which is basically what history says we should be experiencing based on where we are now in this low inflationary environment combined with trailing gap earnings going back to t

and in the six years that we served together, i as majority leader, bob dole as minority leader, never once did a harsh word pass between us, although we differed on many issues, we debated vigorously on the floor of the senate, but it was not personal and we had dinner a couple times a week to talk about the issues and the problems that we had, and life in general. i think that's missing now, unfortunately. >> so i mean, who do you -- i don't know if blame is the right word, but how do you account for this idea that compromise is a dirty word in some quarters? is it tea party, is it extremes in either party? who is it? >> i think it's a combination of many factors, and i'm not an expert on this. i don't pretend to have all of the answers. but first, you now have redistricting which means that the vast majority of house members are elected in safe seats so the crucial election is not the general election, it's the primary election, and as we know in primaries, there's low participation which gives a hugely disproportionate power to the rigid extremes on both sides. that makes it very difficult.
kkk. that, of course, is insane. the only reason anybody ever heard about it is because bob costas mentioned whitlock in his gun commentary on nbc. so we called this whitlock guy and invited him on the factor. here's what he wrote, quote. i was summoned to testify before speaker of the big house, bill o'reilly, the fox news entertainer. i don't have to shuffle off to the big house when summoned. o'reilly is not boehner, pelosi, or obama. he's tv intertainer who spent the weeks after the election crying about the end of white establishment america. the end of the days when an upstanding white man felt entitled to summon whomever he wanted whenever he wanted to the big house to dance. i don't dance, unquote. now, that is pure racism. nothing else. whitlock implying that i'm some kind of slave overlord, and he gets away with that kind of garbage. in fact, he gets paid to spout. way beyond disgraceful. that's poison but not unusual. hate speech now happening all the time. there comes a point when all good people must say enough. that point has now been reached in america. the jason whi
